Jewish Book Council pitch

Last week, I did my 2 minute pitch for my newest book, Dreidel Day at the JBC Network Authors On Tour event in NYC .

I practiced my pitch by a mirror dozens of times but ¬†found out that really, I’m so excited about this book and presenting it at community centers that it was simply natural and easy to do my 2 minute spiel in front of 200 people.

Of course, I brought my cat puppet with me. She’s soft & cuddly and I feel at ease when I play with her. So now everyone got to meet her and she’ll be ¬†traveling with me wherever I tour. (Hope she won’t meow while on the plane…)

Remembering Richard Peck

Richard was an amazing person. I met him in an SCBWI La conference and we instantly became friends.

Besides being a great writer, he was the most entertaining speaker.

I remember laughing with him at the pool party. He loved the hamantaschen recipe in my in my Purim Goodies book, so when I got back from LA, I baked some for him.

Elegant, articulate and wonderful, he’ll be greatly missed.
